National Biological Information Infrastructure Technical Overview.
Biological information presents a tremendous challenge for the computer science community. Biological information varies in format, content, distribution depending whether or not it is information pertaining to a particular species or a specific ecosystem, which often includes multiple species, land use characteristics, and geospatially referenced information. The complexity and uniqueness of each individual species or ecosystem do not easily lend themselves to todayís computer science tools and applications.¬† To address the challenges that the biological enterprise presents the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) (http://www.nbii.gov) was established in 1993. The NBII is designed to address these issues on a National scale and Regional scale within the United States, and through international partnerships abroad. This session will discuss current computer, geospatial, and information science efforts within the National Biological Information Infrastructure Program to aid in the analysis, management, and delivery of biological data within the community.¬† Specific tools, capabilities, and services available will be discussed¬†during the session.¬†¬† ¬†¬†
